      Pre Flop: ($0.06) Hero is BTN with 8 :club: T :club:
      CO checks, Hero raises to $0.16, 1 fold, BB calls $0.12, 1 fold

      Flop: ($0.34) 7 :club: 8 :spade: 3 :spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $0.36, Hero calls $0.36

      Turn: ($1.06) Q :club: (2 players)
      BB bets $1.00, Hero raises to $5.16, BB calls $0.70 all in

      River: ($4.46) Q :spade: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      villain is weak.
      pre: iso because of dead money.
      flop: generally I think that bad players have weak hands when they donk 2/3,3/4 or around pot size. Put him on 7x, 3x, pp, sd, fd, pair+fd and sometimes he will have stronger 8 and2 pairs.
      turn: interesting spot. Maybe he is not betting anymore with 3x,7x.

      Hi Dalmar,

      preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: If we are behind on the turn to a better 1p we still have 5+9 outs for a total about 28% equity. Since we almost always have no FE when we shove we roughly need 38% equity to get the money in there thus we need villain to be playing a worse hand like this. Worse hands can be other draws (like spades) or 7x or 89/86.

      Given that he is fishy and midstack and pots it I think that it's possible to play worse. I doubt that our shove will be highly +ev but I think it's the correct play.

      $1.70 / ($1.06 + $1.70 + $1.70) = ~0.38
      effective stacks / final pot size

      if you aren't understanding exactly how it works don't be afraid to ask more specifically :)

      Hi Dalmar,

      Since we consider the fact that we have 0 equity that means that we will risk $1.70 to win a total pot of 4.46. So 1.7/4.46 ~38%. We'd also need to add the rake which usually adds 2-3% to the equity required.
